By Ishaan . August 15, 2010 . 1:38pm

The Street Fighter and Tekken producers square off in a battle of wits (sort of…) on Twitter, and offer teases on the Darkstalkers and Soul Calibur fronts, too.

Soulcalibur “pillarboxed” for Xbox Live Arcade

By Spencer . May 15, 2008 . 11:07am

Supposedly, these screenshots from the Xbox 360 digital release of Soulcalibur “highlight the transition to the high definition era and fan favorite characters.” However, I can’t seem to find any good comparison images for a side by side comparison. On a quick glance it doesn’t look like anything is different. Perhaps, a sharp-eyed Siliconera reader […]

Will there be Soulcalibur IV Wii? How does Yoda fight? Namco Bandai talks about Soulcalibur IV

By Spencer . January 15, 2008 . 7:24pm

After seeing Yoda and Vader pop on screen, questions popped in my head. Fortunately, I had a chance to speak to Wayne Shiu, Product Marketing Manager of Soulcalibur IV, to get some answers. I figured plenty of people would ask why Yoda and Vader were in the game so I went in with a different […]

Contest – What “soul” would you put in Soulcalibur IV

By Spencer . January 12, 2008 . 10:31am

Adding Yoda and Vader in Soulcalibur IV stirred up quite a bit of discussion. People seem to fall in one of three camps: love it, hate it, or perplexed by it trapped in a "WTF" moment. Katsutoshi Sasaki, the director of the Soulcalibur IV, would like to see Pac-Man. Unfortunately he doesn't have any weapons. […]

Talim joins the cast of Soulcalibur IV

By Spencer . January 11, 2008 . 12:22am

I mentioned this in the Soulcalibur IV party live blog, but in case you didn’t wade through the text Talim will be in Soulcalibur IV. While Talim was not in last night’s build the news comes directly from one of the Namco Bandai staff members working on Soulcalibur IV. Beyond confirming her as a playable […]

4-4-4: Soul Calibur 4 liveblog experiment (final update)

Before that we're starting off with a speech from Namco Bandai. Apparently, the event has some new trailers and "surprises" perhaps not related to Darth Vader or Yoda.   5:00 […]

Guess who also appears in Soul Calibur Legends

By Spencer . October 17, 2007 . 7:20am

Lloyd isn’t restricted to the Tales universe. Namco Bandai is making him a guest character in Soul Calibur Legends with a serious looking character model (thanks for the scan IceAmp!). This is indeed a strange crossover; almost as awkward and cool as seeing Link in Soul Calibur 2.

Will there ever be a Soul Calibur fighting game on the Wii?

By Spencer . September 19, 2007 . 8:25pm

When I was testing Soul Calibur Legends out, the first thing that popped into mind was the motion controls in Bleach: Shattered Blade. So I asked Jin Okubo, the producer of Soul Calibur Legends, if there will ever be a Soul Calibur fighting game on the Wii maybe in the vein of Bleach: Shattered Blade. […]

Meet Hilde, Soul Calibur IV’s new star

By Spencer . September 19, 2007 . 6:02pm

  While I was at Namco Bandai’s headquarters yesterday the development team spoke about Hilde, one of the new characters. One of the funny things they mentioned was that they wanted to make a “sexy” female character who was fully clothed so they thought up the concept of encasing Hilde in armor. Promptly, someone asked […]

By Spencer . June 13, 2007 . 1:39am

Namco Bandai announced that Soul Calibur 4 is in development (shocking!) and that it will be released sometime next year. Unlike Soul Calibur 3, which was a Playstation 2 exclusive, Soul Calibur 4 will be a multiplatform game for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. The teaser hints that this may be the final game […]

By Spencer . May 10, 2007 . 1:08am

  Veilknight dropped us an e-mail (thanks!) about Namco Bandai “crazy ass adventure game” for the Nintendo Wii that stars characters from Soul Calibur. Soul Calibur Legends brings together some of the cast of the fighting game into a third person action adventure game. The concept art above shows Siegfried holding the Soul Edge fighting […]

Watch: What if Castlevania characters were in Soul Calibur?

By Spencer . February 22, 2007 . 8:42am

The wonders of the Soul Calibur III character creation system never stop. Odaleex created fighter based off of the original Simon Belmont and used Ivy’s sword whip for the fighting style. Dracula appears to be using the “Soul of Raphael”. [youtube]kFGvvlWHS-s[/youtube]  Past the break are more Castlevania Soul Calibur videos with Alucard, Richter Belmont and […]
